germany, make it hard for them to accept tougher economic sanctions. but this is where you need american leadership. the fact is that what putin has succeeded in doing is using military force to change international boundaries on the continent of europe. and if the europeans don't realize it, that puts them in considerable jeopardy. the european union is still on very shaky foundations when it comes to the monetary union, political tensions are rising. and putin is taking advantage of them. i think this is a very bad time for the western alliances. >> right. and historically, we have seen this happen in the past, going back to world war ii, beginning stages of that. let's go further. what does the united states have to do to show american leadership and intervene in this difficult situation in ukraine and russia? >> well, i think you've got to do two things. number one, you've got to turn up the cost to russia of this belligerent policy its pursuing. if the europeans are serious about wanting peace and stability on the european continent, they've got to risk economic harm to themselves i

, germany, brazil. who have used columbine as an inspiration. and it's all that publicity that columbine got. the columbine killers they decided they wanted to feel important. and they sought revenge. revenge against their classmates who bullied them. maybe against all of society. and it seems to me that is the motive in this case, as well. >> i know -- i know it's revenge, i know a lot of it is notoriety. how could one not know about columbine even if you were a kid when that happened? i've heard a lot of folks say we, the media, we the public shouldn't be uttering the suspects' names because that then, of course, raises them to a level and elevates them to a level we shouldn't be doing. but do you think that would take away, you know, and some of these other potential school shooters' minds. the troubled minds, the intent to kill? >> first of all, the reporters have a duty to tell the public. and also, the idea of making them into big shot celebrities, putting them on the cover of celebrity magazines. but keep in mind that the copycat factor is inspired by all of this attention. during the
sanctions against russia. germany ruthlessly pursued its mercantile interest and the lobbyist wrong. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including the former german chancellor. he is making money helping national gas -- natural gas flow. >> which goes to one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool, correct? >> it is a rather blunt instrument. choice than tono try sanctions. politics are a flaw. ismany is what russia -- rubbish' partner. partner.ading what jacktell you lew had to say. >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the time crimeaussia went into since we have imposed sanctions. there has been a substantial in russia'sn and -- weak economy. we see it in their exchange rate and stock exchange and a number of important economic indicators. they were downgraded to one notch above junk and with the rationale and the bond rating was in part the sanctions being imposed. the question is how do we proceed and occur -- a careful way step-by-step
about because he was in germany at the time. >> alan? >> you don't think that members of congress will find out more information now that you can have general petraeus and hillary clinton sitting next to each other -- >> how many more investigations -- do you know in the bush administration, i know you hate when i bring up bush -- after 9/11, there were 13 different attacks at embassies and consulates resulting in hundreds of deaths. i didn't hear a word about this. why is there a double standard about this president? >> you shouldn't be afraid of the truth. and if this investigation, this select committee can uncover the truth, then you should welcome it and let the chips fall where they may. listen, krauthammer is right. think about the people that went to jail over covering up a third-rate burglary at the watergate building in washington, d.c. four people died. it's a very big deal. >> benghazi is a tragedy, it's not a scandal. >> oh, it's a scandal. >> when we learn more information with the select committee. >>> extreme weather has wreaked havoc over the u.s. the past few day
. >>> other news, president obama and germany's leader facing some serious questions today on foreign policy flash points including the crisis in ukraine. the president just wrapped up a joint news conference with the german chancellor angela merkel. the u.s. is warning of tougher sanctions against russia over ukraine. the president saying the preference is a diplomatic solution but if that doesn't happen the next step is more sanctions. he says he understands the concerns of some european countries but he's confident the u.s. and the european union will stand together. >> the goal is not to punish russia. the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course. and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i think we are united on that front. within europe, within the eu, i'm sure there has to be extensive consultations. you've got 28 countries and some are more vulnerable than others to potential russian retaliation. we have to take those into account. not every country is going to be in exactly the same place. what has been remarkable is the degree to which all countri
will be watching. thank you so much. >> president obama, meeting with a key u.s. ally. the chancellor of germany. topping the agenda, threat of new sanctions against russia if that country doesn't stop meddling in eastern ukraine. they are live with the latest. >> the president is meeting with chancellor merkel for the first time since she learned about the listen nothing on telephone calls. the emphasis was on ukraine with the separatist battling the police. mr. obama said the u.s. and europe are focusing tougher sanctions. he seemed to rule out russia's energy sector. >> energy flows from russia to europe. those continue in the midst of the cold war. and the height of the cold war. and so the idea that you are going to turn up the tap on all russian oil or natural gas exports is unrealistic. >> arizona senator john mccain thinks that the president should provide weapons to the ukranians and nothing that the u.s. could provide would have them stand up to the russian. and they have strong tees to russian industry. germany leaders yesterday. they are governed by the industrial complex and might a
the u.s. and germany united and sent another stern warning to moscow. >> we are united in our determination to impose costs on russia for its actions as ukrainian forces move to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these russian-backed groups are not peaceful protesters but heavily armed militants receiving significant support from russia. >> times are also tense with ukrainian army launching the first major assault on separatist strong holds in the east of that country. a spokesman for putin called the move a criminal act. nbc news chief white house correspondent chuck todd, also host of "the daily rundown" joins us. how critical was it for the president to get merkel on board with sanctions? >> reporter: it's interesting, that is a glass is half full way of looking at it. here's what clearly they agree to. they have the next deadline that they've set to decide whether to do another round of sanctions and that is the may 25th election. you heard the president essentially say if russia destabilizing the situation, makes -- tries to mess with this e
at the u.s. chamber of commerce and she will be focusing her comments on u.s. trade relations with germany. >> republic of germany. >> good morning, everybody. pleasure to a great welcome my friend, chancellor house. to the white germany is one of our strongest allies, and angela is one of my closest partners. and with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief, comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything we can to create more jobs and opportunities for hard-working families for our economic strength as a source of strength in the world. this morning, we learned that our businesses created 273,000 new jobs last month. all told, our businesses have now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. the grit and determination of the american people are moving us forward, but we have to keep a relentless focus on job creation and creating more opportunities for working families. there is plenty more that congress should be doing, from raising the minimum wage to --ating good restriction good construction jobs rebuilding america. i want t
about it, the administration's nsa spying policy. germany and the united states not able to reach an agreement on that issue. our top story today, the white house perhaps would like to go away, benghazi. especially after yesterday. for americans who heroically served the nation lost their lives and now we're learning house republicans will announce the formation of a select committee to investigate the attack that the explosion bombshell e-mail that i was talking about this began last week showing a coordinated effort by senior white house aides to place blame for the attack on an internet video. all this leading to a testy exchange between our own bret baier and one of the aides who had a hand in the infamous talking points and had one outrageous answer. watch. >> did you also change the tax? >> may be, i don't remember. this was like two years ago. >> the thing everybody is talking about. >> we're talking about editing talking points. your producers edit scripts multiple times. >> "dude." you know what, this was an important part of history in our country for this country. he di
. stuart: i believe in germany being late -- >> yes. stuart: order is half of life. order means being on time. when will we see when this show gets on the road? >> you are seeing a number of uncomfortable germans. i can guarantee that they are aware of it. the u.s. has thus far it decided to present a united front page to hold on, rich. president obama and angela merkel are walking to the podium. let's listen in. >> good morning, everybody. it is always a great pleasure to welcome my friend and chancellor merkel to the white house. germany is one of our strongest allies. with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything that we can to create more jobs and opportunities for working families. this morning we learned that our business has created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 executive months of job growth. the grit and determination the american people is moving forward. we have to focus on job creation and or opportunities for working families. raising the minimum wage to creating good construction jobs in mid-ame
to him multiple timesk and germany is pivotal, because they are reluctant to go further with the further ek sectorial sanctions, because of the impact on the german economy. the trade between germany and russia was $1 billion and u.s. and germany was only $38 million. and germany gets roughly one-third of the oil and gas from russia, so a real concern within the german industry that they are the ones putting the pressure on angela merkel to be careful of what she does next because of the ricochet effect, and anything they do in russia could come back to haunt the german economy as well. >> a lot of money is at stake. and ambassador holliday, i want to get to you, and what do you think about the sanctions, and could they really get vladimir putin to change course here? >> well, it is going to be difficult to get him to change the course, but the increased sa sanctions could be twofold. one, we could get the europeans and germany in particular to escalate the sanctions on targeted energy companies, on that sector, but broadly speaking, we could go up to full sectorial sanctions which would
? >> stand by. jim, how much distance, daylight, is there between the u.s. and germany on the imp sigs of sanctions? >> clearly enough to keep the real sector sanctions. really the step that's going to make a difference and impose a real economic price on russia and we saw that difference in the last week when you had the obama administration seemingly teeing up harder sanctions than they were able to deliver when announced earlier this week. but two, the u.s. administration has made clear that they're holding those sanctions for the event that russian troops roll across the border into ukraine and they'll make the point we need that step, we need to impose some sort of price. the trouble is, that lays out the possibility for what's happening now, which is in effect, the stealth invasion. russian directed separatists taking over cities and towns causing disruption, shooting down helicopters. it's a real problem. >> the u.s. has made the point, administration officials make the point over and over again, the unity of the united states with the european union is what's all important here
into the civil, the world of civilized nations, and merkel is resonant to look at that economy. >> well, germany gets a third of the natural gas from rush sharks and 350,000 german workers depend on russian trade, and the difficu difficulty is that what are the chances that the europeans and the german s wis will make the ongoing sectorial sanctions? >> well, the dilemma is that the white house is going to make the going after putin and the cronies and the institutions with them to affect the course of the nation that i think that is, it is in the midst of a natural greatness campaign and wanting to feel a restoration of the pride and dignify in the world, and if you want to sanction the individuals, that is not going to necessarily give you the correction of the courses, and it is sort of like if you have the u.s. trying to sanction david koch and george soro soros, and hoping that the united states would go a different direction and many people have said that unless the sanctions are sectorial which involves pain for us, and pain for europe, russia will not take them seriously. and so it is th
and on this issue, of course, of ukraine. it is also important to note that germany has a lot of economic ties with russia, and the question is whether you put more economic pressure on that country and actually affect the economic relations between germany and russia. so, a lot to think about here especially since big german companies, volkswagen to name one, have a huge stake in russia. and the more pressure you put on, the harder it is for those companies to continue to do business very well and thrive, carol. >> joe johns reporting live from the white house this morning. thank you. >>> still to come in the "newsroom," tensions flare and ukraine's military mobilizes. we'll look at a new offensive that could push the country closer to widespread fighting.

. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including former german chancellor, who is making a lot of money helping natural gas flow from russia to germany. no surprise. angela merkel is under pressure. host: one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool? guest: it is limited and a blunt instrument but also there is no other choice. not a lot of other alternatives. politics are flawed, too. germany is russia's's largest trading partner in the eu. they have more economic interest in the u.s. and its owing to be hard to pressure russia and a major way unless the europeans are willing to play. host: let me share what jack lew told members of congress when it came to sanctions and at russia and the wealthy individuals linked to president putin. [video clip] >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy, it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the period of time since russia went into crimea and since we have imposed sanctions. there has been a substantial deterioration in rush's already weak economy. we see and
point ceases to be in the interests of the german government. germany gets a third of its oil and gas from russia and some of germany's best-known companies, volkswagen for one, have huge stakes in russia. so any type of sanction has a potential economic blowback and it's just a sign of how the west has a limited toolbox in dealing with the situation in ukraine, chris. >> all right, joe, thank you very much for the reporting. >>> let's bring in cnn military analyst james "spider" marks a retired major generally and former commanding general of the u.s. army intillgence center. general, thank you for joining us. let's leave the politics aside and deal with the urgency on the ground. what do you believe the situation is? who is ukraine fighting? what do you think the stakes are? >> fighting two elements really. you do have pro-russian separatists that are in east ukraine, but they're being supported directly, not only in terms of what i would call over-the-horizon support, weapons support, but also they have russian forces are on the ground instigating this and these are the folks we've
and 12th? >> at home until i was recalled. >> the operations center in germany. you were in the room. >> yes. >> you were able to see, hear, feel, understand what was going on in that room? >> we worked toward understanding, yes, sir. >> were you ever interviewed by the accountability review board? >> no, sir. >> your primary responsibility was to try -- "j two was focused on attribution, that attacks became a german will very soon after the event." what do you believe they were attributable to? >> an islamist extremist group. >> al qaeda? >> we felt it was ansaria. >> affiliated with al qaeda. >> yes. >> aqim, were they involved? >> aas is who we looked at. >> how quickly did you come to the conclusion that you believed there were al qaeda affiliates or al qaeda themselves involved engaged in the attack? >> very soon in the early hours of the activity. >> was it a video? >> no, sir. >> did it spark a protest? >> no, sir. >> i want to get the facts at a time. the cia station chief is quoted as saying, "not not an escalation a protest." would you agree or disagree with the cia station
that killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. general lovell was in germany awaiting orders to strike at the terrorists, orders that never came. >> what we did know quite early on is that this was a hostile action. this was no demonstration gone terribly awry. to the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. the afri-con j 2 was focused on attribution. the attacks became attributable very soon after the event. >> so that means the u.s. military, the cia on the ground in libya, and pretty much everyone else directly involved with the benghazi attack knew it was not a spontaneous demonstration within hours. yet, as we proved yesterday, the obama administration created a fiction that the attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim videotape. the cover was blown off that deception this week when a memo by white house advisor ben rhodes was released through the freedom of information act. the memo clearly says that ambassador susan rice was prepped to tell the world on television that a videotape incited the murders in benghazi. incredibly,
, spain, and germany. and if we didn 't, we should have. and one take aways from this, is we need to eva evaluate our abiy to respond to a crisis anywhere in the world on short notice. a lot of people say this is about sticking it to the white house, or hillary clinton. no this is investigation, also serves to make sure that men and women who serve in our dip that diplomatic corps is feel seiche, like they have washington d.c. behind home, when they are out and hostile territory risking their lives for american interests. lou: congressman and congresswoman thank you so much. >> thank you, lou. >> absolutely. lou: time for a look at last night's on-line poll results. would you be more or less likely to vote for a former president's family memr. 87% said no. remember national average in most recent polling was 70% saying no this audience voted 87%. 13% of you said, well why not. i guess. at least you said yes. vote tonight, as we sort of try tto narrow in on this, do you believe jeb bush and hillary clinton will face each other in the presidential general election in 2 2016? cast your vote
germany? but most timidly say african-american, they are afraid they may offend if they don't. but this gentleman says he likes offending people. >> when you say this makes steam come out of people's ears, saying that is kind of crazy. >> i don't see anything fun about what donald sterling. >> for the record he said i don't care if you sleep with him, just don't advertise it. that's like a broadway mobile thing i don't care if you sleep with the dancers, don't publicize it. and so he is doing something, and he's being a jerk are going to try to censor that you do more harm than good. and the biggest problem is that -- john: it makes me look bad if my girlfriend is seen with those people? >> yes. and that is the dilemma that you put yourself in when you create a censorship or its i'm playing devil's advocate thing maybe he meant it looks like you are with my basketball player. i don't know, the beauty of the is it we don't have to get into these semantics. >> polity in admits to having used this word. announcing that they would not renew her contract. and that is her prerogat
. and russians went into east germany in '53. they went into hungary in '56. they went into prague in '68. we were always very careful. they have 1700 nuclear weapons. >> but it wasn't arming those countries that led to tend of the cold war and the collapse of the soviet union. >> a very long-term collapse. >> it was economic. >> we need to be thinking about a 20-year plan to be dealing with putin. >> yes. >> not a 20-week plan. >> i would tend to agree with you on that. and i don't understand why if this is true, and i appreciate your perspective, where are the republicans who are willing to play this longer game with this president? you talk about how weak this president. i don't think this president looks week to al qaeda. i don't think this president looks weak to moammar gadhafi. i think america looks weak when the republican party attacks this president when he goes for peace, when he goes for war, when he tries to do overseas, stuff at home. where is the one area you are willing to work with this president on? >> first thing i said we had to go, look at this strategically and we have t
in germany, they knew there was no connection to a protest or an internet video. >> it was early on in the evening of september 11th. >> before 3:15 a.m. >> absolutely. >> within hours, sources tell fox a target list was assembled and lovell testified a terrorist group with known ties to al qaeda was blamed. >> it was -- we felt it was -- >> lovell's testimony is consistent with the september 12th e-mail from state department official beth jones to secretary of state hillary clinton's closest aides, including sheryl mills, that the libyan ambassador was told -- was responsible. what's been overlooked is hours later on 10:00 p.m. september 11th even before the attack was over mrs. clinton sent out a press release directly linking the video to the benghazi violence. while mrs. clinton waes statement was out of sync with the intelligence it was reinforced three daze later by the ben rhodes e-mail which critics say intended to shape the public discussion of a terrorist attack. lovell testified that the state department did not respond quickly that night. >> it's not what they did in
into the attack on september 11, 2012, they knew at the command center in germany it was direct assault and not connected to a protest or a video. >> it was mayoral on in -- early on in the earning. >> before 3:15 in the morning. >> absolutely. we were -- absolutely. we -- i would have to say probably dismiss that notion by then, by working with other sources. >> and by 3:15, local time, in the morning, on september 12th , 2012, sean smith was already dead, ambassador stevens was missing, and two hours latary mortar attack would kill the former navy seals. level testified they already knew, based on intelligence, that an al qaeda-linked group was to blame. >> it was -- >> the testimony is consistent with the september 12th e-mail from 2012 from state department official beth jones, where she tells mrs. clinton's closest aides, she is in touch with the libyans and told them sharia was behind the attack, not gadhafi loyalists. this e-mail was entered into the record today at the hearing. >> what are democrats saying? >> this morning house minority leader nancy pelosi seemed to dismiss the
. in fact, the general, the brigadier general from the africa command, they were stationed in germany, italy or germany, didn't have a forward basing. they were hours and hours away. that's one of the takeaways. have we improved security at these consulates and embassies? have they met that obligation since? >> that's an ongoing question and something that the administration has conceded and their independent review conceded that security was totally lacking, was not -- was not up to it. again, the reality is, not only the question of whether this was an intelligence failure, whether on 9/11 of all days, the government was not appropriately prepared for the prospect of a terror attack. >> that is a seriously -- >> system a question that i think -- >> strong criticism. >> when this gets into the political arena, you go off in lots of different directions about who's tough on television, who's soft on 200terrorism. we can focus on areas of conflict that arise and get to the bottom of the conflicts. to me today the question is as you look at this e-mail, it is clearly an attempt by a foreign po
the results from his post in germany testified before the house oversight committee and he said there should have been a military response. no one thought a video had anything to do with the attack. the attack that left four americans did including ambassador chris stevens. >> benghazi in 2012, this is the most serious of the themes. there are many sayings in the military. one saying that rings most true, you fight the way you train and in benghazi we did. many with first-hand knowledge have recounted heroism displayed bit brave americans in benghazi that night. they fought the way they trained. that's in the record. outside of libya there were discussions that churned on what we should do. these elements also fought the way they were trained. specifically the predisposition inneragency influence had the military structure in the spirit of expeditionary government support waiting for a request for assistance from the state department. there are counts of time, space and capability, discussions of the question, could we have gotten there in time to make a difference? well the discussion is no
, germany, and all across the globe. andificatioand, of course, theyd generations of men and women, the greatest generation, of which my dad was a member, the world war ii generation, and then of course those who fought in korea and vietnam and, of course, the most recent conflicts we've had, which i just mentioned in iraq and afghanistan. my strong conviction is that we owe a moral obligation -- not just a legal obligation -- to those veterans to keep our commitments to them once they separate from military service. and i'm sorry to say that the department of veterans affairs has repeatedly and outrageously failed to hold its own commitment to america's armed forces and our veterans. now, we're -- i think the problem, the way i see it, is we've almost become desensitized to the problem, because we know -- we all know that as a result of the drawdown of our military after our exit from iraq and now afghanistan that we're getting a large number of people rye tiring from military -- retiring from military service and so it's understandable that there would be more pressure put on the
: the general was in stuttgart, germany on the night of the attack. what he was able to see in realtime was the message traffic from libya to washington. we expect them to testify there was nothing that message traffic about a protest and nothing about the video. let's listen to congressman jason chaffetz who gave as you present violate yesterday. >> they took a country in libya and turned it into a failed state. one of the people that will be in that room is somebody who is in charge of a lot of the intelligence that they were gleaning in libya. we are going to talk about libya, where it's going, how it's become that failed state. >> reporter: if he testifies he saw nothing in the message traffic about a protest or video that will be significant. as part of our ongoing reporting at fox news we referred to a report september 17, our sources on the ground in libya also said there was no protest and fox received considerable pushback for that reporting. bill: i see darrell is a gaveling the hearing to an opening. let's rinse as this hearing begins. >> ... successes and failures of u.s. in
laughable. today we're going to hear from a general, air force general who was there in germany as this was going down in the room. we're going to hear from him, what was happening in that room? were the facts as we knew them? and the white house just can't keep saying we were dealing with the best intelligence we had. oh, yeah? what was that intelligence? what did the military think was going down? >> so we had talking points ahod mike morell said i had no idea where that word tape came from. but you also have him dealing with offering a his services to help work something outs with the state department. that's also in these documents. >> he said that he was worried it would be embarrassing to the state department. that doesn't sound like somebody who is trying to get out the truth about what's going on in benghazi. you would the station chief himself say it had nothing to do with a video and that that led to some sort of mob that got out of control. >> one thing, you guys got to help gregory hicks 'cause his career is all screwed up because believe. but today, you're going to
a lot of energy, germany, angela merkel one of her big problems is that her country really likes the energy coming out of russia. >> that's true. it's up to the united states and the west. we have plenty of energy resources. all we have to do is start using them intelligently. and reduce the dependency of western europe on russian gas. >> see, i see it as even a larger issue in that, you know, while all the focus is on ukraine and what he is doing there is that last year when president obama drew the red line with syria and that back fired and he sort of outsourced and ling the chemical weapons in syria to putin, putin then was supposedly going to help us. now we hear that there is chlorine gas used about a month ago against civilians. it sounds like either we are foolish or there has been some double dealing or whatever. i see that sort of inroads in syria and a bigger problem for israel and sort of expanding in the region. that's what i see is even a larger issue. >> it's even bigger thansrki that in my view. the problem is you you know you can -- if you go back through frankl
